      Fancy Bustle regalia pattern help...

      I want to make a set of aprons and top for a friend, however I'm kinda confused on how to make the top. I have seen guys with vests, and others wearing - what looks like a bib with a vest back. I was wondering about the second style, is it a vest with a bib sewn on or how is this made? If you could please post some pics, that would help me out alot.

      Also with the aprons, are they separate or sewn onto a strip of material-like belt?
